Falmouth University HR Director

Falmouth University is the UK’s number one creative university and ranked in the top 30 of all UK universities. This is thanks, in large part, to our fantastic staff. From the academic departments, to professional services, the estates team, student support, to our technical staff, we have more 1000 dynamic and dedicated colleagues.

In an increasingly competitive market, Falmouth is working to transform the delivery of Higher Education, creating a modern, fast paced, state-of-the-art learning environment and creative innovation hub in Cornwall.

Our strategic objectives are simple; we want to produce satisfied graduates who go on to get great jobs in their chosen field. However, we are also committed to supporting the regeneration of the Cornwall’s economy, by raising levels of business innovation, competitiveness and productivity.

There is an opportunity for a dynamic HR Director to join us, to lead and drive the transformation of the University’s HR function, developing an agile workforce that will deliver Falmouth’s ambitious plans for growth and development over the next 10 years and beyond.

The HR function is responsible for both the University and Falmouth Exeter Plus (FX Plus), a joint enterprise with the University of Exeter that looks after the shared facilities and services at the Penryn campus, including the student accommodation, libraries, and a nursery.
